remember the spin stops right here because we are definitely here because we are definitely looking out for you. captioned by closed captioning services, inc. >> sean: here we are 55 days from the midterm elections. the president made a stunning admission about the democrats prospects this evening in an interview with abc news. >> if the election is a referendum on are people satisfied about the economy as it is, then we are not going to do well, because i think everybody feels like, this economy needs to do better than it has been doing. >> sean: that came on the heels in the speech in ohio where he was pitching the same policies that have gotten democrats into this difficult position. not many turned up to hear him. the cleveland dealer reports that event organizers were ling to fill seat as hour before the speech.
9:01pm
they asked students where the event took place to fill the empty seats at last minute. with his recruited audience in place the president charged forward on the subject of the bush tax cuts. he took a page from liberals on campaigns past. class warfare. >> the president: i believe we ought to make the tax cuts for the middle class permanent. for the middle class, permanent. but the republican leader of the house doesn't want to stop there. make no mistake, he and his party believe we should also give a permanent tax cut to the wealthiest 2% of americans. >> sean: shockingly the president went so far as to blame the bush tax cuts for our economic woes. >> the president: when they passed these tax cuts in 2001 and 2003 they didn't want everybody to know what it would do to our deficit. so they pretended like gonna
9:02pm
end even though now they say they don't. >> sean: the president had a rare moment of honesty during his speech. i hope voters are watching this. >> the president: taxes are scheduled to go up substantially, next year. for everybody. >> sean: that's right, i know the anointed one will make sure that happens. joining me with reaction former adviser to president george w. bush the one and only karl rove the architect is back. welcome back, sir. >> thank you sean how are you? >> sean: i'm good. if it is going to be a referendum on his economic policies, the democrats are not going to do women if i'm campaigning and i hear the president say that and he put me into this mess and he put me in the position of making these controversial votes, i don't think i would be too happy. >> all across america i think we can hear teeth gnashing, cars being driven from campaign event to campaign
9:03pm
event there are a lot of democrats who go home and cry themselves to sleep. the issue is the economy. you look at the gallup poll this week of the nine issues they tested the top four were economy, jobs, spending and corruption in washington. the democrats are behind on all of those economic questions by a margin of between 5 to 15. the number one issue is the economy. the democrats are behind the eight ball on this in a bad way. for the president, it was a refreshing bit of candor. if i were a democrat, i would not be happy with my president. >> sean: it is frightening if the president yes we can people fainting a long way we've come in 20 short months they have to recruit a crowd because they can fill the room an hour before the speech. then he goes back to the tried and true warfare rhetoric top 2% pay over 40% of the tax bill in the country he forget
9:04pm
to remind people they create the jobs. >> and filers are small businesses 54% of all subchapter will pay higher taxes under his plan, 50% of ail small business income will be tacked at a higher rate. those businesses -- be taxed at a higher rate. we know also it is volatile small business may be in that top pool this year and out of it next year. it is not just the same 2% are going to get taxed every year. the president was a class warrior he fell back on those old tricks that he does in moments of desperation he engaged in accusing his opponents of believing things they don't and saying things that he has got to understand are not true. like making the same claims about the health care and stimulus bills that he's made before. >> sean: he did tell everybody, he was honest, rare moment,
9:05pm
said everybody's taxes are going up. i thought that was refreshing. obviously, with all the class warfare rhetoric. i have in my hand what will be in the "wall street journal" tomorrow. a column by you. you start out with words that i've waited a long time for to you say. because i've been asking you for a number of weeks and months where you think the election is headed. you said as -- all signs point to a punishing defeat for the democrats in the house of representatives. karl rove welcome aboard. >> let me tell you what we did. get every public poll i could get about congressional races since july and looked at 'em. there are 111 of those polls, sean. a really remarkable number. they cover 79 districts. what they show is as follows: they show in democrat districts, held by democrat incumbents there are 30 who
9:06pm
are behind their republican opponents. in open seats there are 7 democratic open seats in which the republican leads. conversely, in the republicans, there's only one -- 14 distri republicans, eight are helped by republican incumbents only one is behind his democrat opponent in six open seats only two in which the republican is behind. there are 37 democrats who today are behind the republican opponents or democrat district where a republican leads there are only three republican seats that are at risk. that's a net republican gain in these districts alone of 34 seats. the republicans only need 30 to win. what was also remarkable is, 36 democrats who lead their republican opponent by less than five points. most of those by 12 of 'em by less than three points. all but two instances those
9:07pm
democrats are far more better known than the republican opponents. meaning the more the republican gets known in the last few days, few weeks of the campaign, the better they have -- the better their chance to win. i see a tsunami coming and it ain't gonna be pretty in the obama white house. >> sean: based on your numbers, the column, you are upwards of 70 plus seats. >> i don't think -- no, no, look i think there are 80 or 90 seats in play. if you take charlie cook, stu rothberg, the national journal and the study for npr by stan greenberg, there are 105 democrat house seats that showed up on one or more of those four prognosticators' list. i think we have 80 or 85 seats in play. i bet you a dime to a dollar we wake up the day after the elections and the republicans will won a seat we have never thought about and discussed with a candidate that we barely know his or her name.
9:08pm
>> sean: we are going through this in great detail. always a pleasure, thanks. >> thanks sean. >> sean: plenty more hannity coming up, straight ahead. >> one day i would like to represent the city of chicago. >> sean: it is his kind of town is rahm ready to head home to be the next mayor of chicagoland? >> top five ways to know your party is in big trouble. democrats are you watching? >> prince an harry reid refuses to take any responsibility for the state of the economy. that and michelle malkin and our great, great american panel. how new york city manages i.t. or, like bmc software, you can dream it and do it. bmc lists on nasdaq, the world's most innovative can-do exchange. [ both screaming ] i got into one of the most expensive schools in the country!

9:10pm
north carolina that andy griffith has taken a hit in the polls. a 12 point plunge since 2008 with his favorability rating. could his recent support of the health care bill be behind his tanking poll numbers? i venture to say that even mat lock could solve that mystery. straight ahead. host: could swio really save you 15% or more on car insurance? did the little piggy cry wee wee wee all the way home? piggy: weeeeeee, weeeeeee, weeeeeee, weeeee weeeeeeee. mom: max. ...maxwell! piggy: yeah? mom: you're home.
9:11pm
piggy: oh,cool, thanks mrs. a. anncr: geico. 15 minutes could save you 15% or more. when my doctor told me that my chronic bronchitis was copd... i started managing it every day. i like to volunteer... hit the courts... and explore new places. i'm breathing better with spiriva. spiriva is the only once-daily inhaled maintenance treatment for both forms of copd... which includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. i take it every day... it keeps my airways open to help me breathe better all day long. spiriva does not replace fast acting inhalers for sudden symptoms. stop taking spiriva and call your doctor right away if your breathing suddenly worsens, your throat or tongue swells, you get hives, have vision changes or eye pain... or have problems passing urine. tell your doctor if you have glaucoma, problems passing urine or an enlarged prostate... as these may worsen with spiriva. also discuss the medicines you take... even eye drops. side effects include dry mouth, constipation and trouble passing urine. now, i'm managing
9:12pm
my chronic bronchitis every day. ask your doctor if once-daily spiriva is right for you. >> sean: tonight in your america, democrats watching as their party plummets in the polls. beyond the poll numbers we are seeing additional signs that the gop gains could be on the way. democrats, these are the five ways you know your party is in big trouble. >> number five, top democratic donors are bailing on party. analysis of the houston chronicle reveals 126 businesses that supported senate democrats in 2008 are almost all supporting republicans. number four, the party that once praised obamacare is changing its tune this is what we heard from nancy pelosi in march. >> we believe in was passed as an all-american act. >> sean: now democrats are
9:13pm
running away from that all-american act. of the house democrats who vetted for obamacare none released ads highlighting their vote. number three, most democrats want nothing to do with their party's leader. today the associated press published an article under a headline that red: -- that read: fewer democratic candidates seek obama's help. arkansas governor talked about the phenomenon with reporters yesterday. >> i think judging from the polls i've seen on approval ratings president obama couldn't help many people. that's about as candid as i know how to be. >> sean: number two, it appears democrats still think is 2004 because they can't stop talking about the former president george w. bush. >> i don't have any hand in what took place during the bush administration. >> the president: they have not come up with a single solitary idea that is any
9:14pm
different from the policies of george w. bush. >> sean: but, are americans buying the strategy? according to a wall street journal/nbc news poll, the answer no. 58% surveyed said if the gop wins control of the congress they will bring new ideas to the table that brings us to the number one way democrats know their party is in trouble. under a democratically controlled congress americans' dissatisfaction with the federal government has reached its highest point in 18 years. joining when reaction to this list of concerns for the democrats, sandra smith and kate obenshain. you both are smiling: look, if democratic donors -- they are looking out for their business interest they go with the flow. >> it is not a business-friendly administration.
9:15pm
businesses still aren't hiring. the end of the day they see health care costs rising, tagses going up. the employees at those 126 companies they gave their money to democrat two years ago. this time they are saying this isn't working out for us. >> democrats are saying the reason is that they are their bets that these businesses are protecting our own interests. it is because they are so shocked they've been burned by the policies the financial institution supported obama in 2008. now they are shifting. something we have to keep in mind the unreported donations. still, even though it looks good for republicans, union donations -- >> sean: good point. >> democrats still have a major fundraising advantage. >> sean: one of the things i'm finding humorous is democrats you think they would run on passing health care 219, not one running an ad. democrats that voted against it, i wasn't one of those
9:16pm
guys. i had nothing to do with what that party did. >> health care costs are rising so much faster than anybody and 'tis tated. today etna, blue cross/blue shield said premiums are going up between 1 to 9% within weeks this is happening so much faster than anybody anticipated. this will speed the progress for republicans heeding -- heading into november. >> sean: their agenda has failed the american people and the polls show that they don't want to be seen with obama pelosi, they don't want to be seen with harry reid. >> obama demonstrated today he's tone-deaf. you are not supposed to talk about health care and stimulus packages. he's talking about a 50 billion dollar stimulus package. >> sean: telling us he's going to raise taxes. >> exactly to pay for a stimulus package after half of the trillion dollar stimulus package still hasn't been spent. >> the thing that got to a lot of people that continues, that denial we see from the
9:17pm
administration. yesterday sean, robert gibbs, at the white house said by any measure the economy is better today than it was two years ago. when unemployment was 6.1% two years ago now we are at 9.6? >> sean: what is this man smoking? he can't even believe his own propaganda. i get frustrated with the fixation blame bush, blame bush. he promised us 20 months ago, he begged to be president. he's president. mr. president, i told new before, man-up. sit at the table, put your pants on. take responsible. it is his debt. it is his deficit, it is his economy. his health care, stimulus, budget. >> all the things that bush did they criticized bush for, obama has done and overdone. stimulus spending even more on spending in afghanistan. spending, spending. it is hard for them to say they are taking a different tact from bush. but their tact against bush is
9:18pm
indicative of what they are going to do in the fall. they are going to smear. going to try to tie republicans to bush. also what they do so well, smear good, decent human beings, good decent republicans, they are good at that. >> sean: we pointed out that the dissatisfaction with the government is at its highest level in 18 years, that's an ominous sign. look at all the polling data, we've been through it here on the show. the one thing that concerns me the most is the nearly 2/3 of americans that think america is now in decline. that speaks volumes. they've opinion in control. they've had congress for four -- they've been in control. they've had congress for four years, white house for two. >> there's still a decline in all measures of the economy, housing, employment, health of the consumer. there's nothing the democrats heading into november can point to and say we did this.
9:19pm
we are happy about this. harry reid in nevada -- >> sean: not my fault, 14% unemployment. >> was absurd on his par. what is really important for republicans to do right now -- not just assume that the demise is going to get them there. are articulate and putting people out there like michelle bachmann and people who have positive ideas. >> sean: they need to put the ideas on paper. >> they have. a lot of the young guns have done that. paul ryan and mike pence are doing a great job. they have to be aggressive. >> sean: good to see you, thank you both. head over to foxnation.com for more details on the midterms and the other stories we are covering here on hannity. stay with us, plenty more yet to come. >> simply put, it is time to move on. >> sean: now that mayor daley is calling it quits will rahmbo leave washington to

9:24pm
>> sean: rahm emanuel's time in the white house may be coming to an end. suspicion is swirling he may depart the sinking sthoeup run for mayor of chicago. >> one day i would like to run for mayor for the city of chicago that's been an aspiration even when i was in the house of representatives. >> sean: now the job is up for grabs. mayor daley shocked the political world yesterday by
9:25pm
nunsing he will not run for reelection. his father preceded him as mayor and one or the other has run the city for much of the past 55 years. the daleys have done a bit to contribute to chicago's reputation as a hotbed of corruption. suspected that elderly daley helped schwinn the election in jfk's favor with the votes of more than a few dead people that race was died -- was decided with just 9,000 votes in illinois. a daley ally was convicted for trying to pack the payroll with campaign workers. i think rahmbo would be a worthy successor. joining me with analysis is the author of culture of corruption, michelle malkin. first of all, if you look at orszag leaving and roamer leave -- leaving the economic time leaving, i don't think rahmbo has much time any way.
9:26pm
>> i think that's right. you look at the folks who are bailing. the thing is christine roamer went back to berkeley cushy teaching job. peter orszag think tanks, cushy jobs. why would rahm emanuel want to go back to the windy city which is reeling economically? buried in debt. crime infested public housing, corrupted police department. i guess he just wants to finish off the city once and for all. and i think as a practical matter he better decide soon. the primary is february 22nd. i believe he's got to file and gather close to 13,000 signatures by november 22nd if he's getting in at all. it is interesting, as much as he has sort of the national reputation and the raised profile, a lot of chicago observers wonder what kind of constituency he has left? yes, he will be able to raise
9:27pm
money from his old hedge fund friends and former freddie and fannie mae executives. constituency in the city is questionable. these going to face a lot of competition from the far left especially. the progressive open borders, congressman gutierrez, i think wants to get in. jesse jackson, despite all of his corrupt baggage, is interested in the position as well. rahm emanuel and jesse jackson both still have to face questions with the upcoming retrial of rod blagojevich. >> sean: i think in the blagojevich case it is interesting, we had sworn testimony, the media didn't pay attention to this rahmbo and the president himself in spite of what they said publicly were up to their eyeballs in trying to influence who it was that blago picked to replace obama for his old senate seat. i think there may be more to come. it may even in the end, be
9:28pm
some legal issues for them. >> you would hope there would be consequences, of course this is chicago. and i suppose there might be some sort of political calculation that all of that dirt and all of that grasp and conspiracy helps rather than hurts them. >> sean: we are 55 days out as of today, michelle. you are known as a strong solid conservative. you know, we watched what happened in alaska, we saw what happened with sharon -- sharron angle in nevada, rand paul, establish. versus the tea party movement. tea party movement keeps winning. we have another case emerging next tuesday delaware christine o'donnell, the establishment is trying to assassinate her character, smear her. mike castle voted for obamacare, tarp, cap and tax, the establishment wants him. what can we interpret from
9:29pm
that? >> we've talked many times, sean, about the need for conservatives to stand up and make sure that there are real choices at the ballot box and conservatives do not repeat the same nations of the past and put people in office or back into office entrenched incumbents who have sided with our political opponents and enemies and on the wrong side for american taxpayers rather than the right side. it is time to stop rewarding big government republicans who colluded with the democrats to create the same problems we had in the first place. as a conservative i believe in the marketplace, whether political or economic, that more choices are better. i am not afraid of the fact that there is rancor among the grass roots. and there are more alternatives. i endorsed christine o'donnell. i met her over the past couple of weeks -- >> sean: i've known her for
9:30pm
years. here's my problem -- >> she is not perfect, but who is? >> sean: only you michelle. >> far from it. >> sean: if he voted for cap and tax, tarp and obama care, and everything else, i'm is a prescription for the republican party to fail. that doesn't sound like the conservative ascendancy that the country wants. why would the establishment get so strongly behind somebody that voted with the democrats so often? >> because they put politics above principle. and i'm sick of that. that's what got us into this mess in the first place. and bravo for people for standing up, getting into the political arena, weathering the slings and arrows that come with it. and refusing to sit on the sidelines. it is time to get in the game that's what is happening. that's why the republican establishment is so afraid of people that they have not anointed to be their
9:31pm
entrenched incumbent water carriers. >> sean: interesting to watch tuesday. michelle malkin, thanks. on the eve of the anniversary of 9/11, imam rauf comes out with his most extensive comments on the ground zero mosque controversy yet. details coming up, next. ♪ i thought it was over here... ♪ [car horn honks]

9:36pm
from completion of this project. rauf stresses that my life's work has been focused on building bridges teen religious groups. our objective has always been to make this a center for case and healing. is this unification? what about the laundry list of still unanswered questions? joining me michael gause. board member of the muslim canadian congress, riel rassa is with us. you have said there is a stubbornness and tone-deafness creating a backlash. we don't build a mosque on the graveyard of people mo wrongly died in the name of allah. you say as a muslim you find this offensive, why? >> i find it offensive to be building a mosque on the -- on top of what is considered to
9:37pm
be a graveyard because it is not sensitive to the feelings of the people who live there. not sensitive to the people of the community. a mosque is to be built with feelings of the community not just four walls, a place of spiritual record ship. our faith tells us to be sensitive to the feelings of others especially nonmuslims when we live among them and to be sense i have to their feelings and compassionate this doesn't show compassion to me. in his 1,000 word op-ed imam rauf said he's sensitive to the victims of 9/11. when a tended a meeting of the organizers and his wife daisy, the property developer said he didn't even understand why people were feeling sensitive about building a mosque at this location. imam rauf, three times in his article has mentioned the fact that the legal rights to build something. of course everyone knows that he has rights so does the pastor in florida.
9:38pm
does it make ethical and moral? the same people who invoke the first amendment for rights if they want to criticize the pastor in florida for wanting to burn the qur'an, what grounds do they have to stand on? to me, the imam hasn't answered any of the questions that are key to the building of this mosque. like the funding. where will the funding come from? >> sean: great question. before that, some unification when 70% of americans don't want it. they've heard the arguments. they've heard his radical statements. his desire to make america sharia comply khrapbt. -- compliant, lack of condemnation of hamas. you went to new york you met with the organizers here and you got a threatening, intimidating call about that. can you tell us about that? >> when i first heard of this bidding of the mosque at ground zero by the name the name has changed to cordoba
9:39pm
house. i was concerned because it didn't feel right. i wrote an on saying this is not a good idea. i was invited to a meeting that was held by the organizers. at that meeting i met the wife of the imam and the property developer. basically what he said was that i don't see why i have to sit here and give an slant nation of why this is sensitive to the feelings of new yorkers. the people in the room were victims and families of 9/11. and they expressed very clearly that it is not the idea of the mosque that bothers them. it is the location that bothers them and could it not be at another location? which is an idea that i support. six days later, i was called on my cell phone and he first accused me of jumping -- >> sean: i'm running out of time. >> and he threatened me. >> sean: michael, first of all, you have yet to give me a
9:40pm
satisfactory explanation. america is an access troy 9/11. he won't condemn hamas. all of the controversy surrounding this man. he's not a unifier. this guy has been divisive. now he's saying we are putting it there, i don't care what the american people think. isn't that what he's saying? >> well sean, the real issue is -- >> sean: the real issue is answering my question. >> tell me what it is. >> he has not addressed the controversy surrounding him. i want to know why he thinks america is an accessory to 9/11? do you think america is an access troy 9/11. -- is an accessory to 9/11. >> sean: not out of context, we played it on this program, sir. >> there is no question about it, america is not an accessory. terrorists killed 3,000 americans now we other radicals in our country who
9:41pm
want to frighten the muslim americans. first of all the whole thing thank you mentioned about 70% of americans what they don't know sean is that it is not a mosque, it is not on ground zero. it is built outside that is the issue. >> sean: it is right near ground zero. i'm running out of time. >> how clouds? >> >> sean: it is right near there. >> it is two blocks away. >> sean: if you don't condemn hamas, a terror organization whose charter calls for the destruction of israel that tells me a lot about you. number two, awe america of being an act res . that tells me a lot but. osama bin laden made in the u.s. that tells me a lot but. you want to push in aside and regurgitate this talking point he's a tune fire. i don't see unification from this imam michael. >> topic is the community center that is the topic.
